Colour variations of Sparaxis


By Siris

Colour variations of Sparaxis (Sparaxis tricolor (Harlequin Flower))

Seems to be 3 different colour variations in the 25 corms of Sparaxis. Put into 5 pots, pot 2 contains the only white/pink one.

Beautiful Siris and a bit of a result for me as I have two orange flowers the same out at the moment. Can't think where they came from, must have been a mixed lot from Wilko or some such.

Aren't they pretty. First time I have grown them. I will feed, then lift the pot after the foliage has died down and keep dry over winter, as they are South African plant, I believe.

This is a new one to me. Very eye catching!

Saw Sparaxis in Dottydaisy's real garden originally. Liked them. Easily obtained in the UK in packets in Spring in one of our chain stores.

Every one of mine (last year) was orange! They are not yet in flower this year. They were a free gift from a garden centre with my loyalty card.

Wildrose, don't look a gift horse in the mouth, even if it's orange!
